Changes in Reglementation 2021

The change in regulations as of March 1, 2021, offers you advantages in terms of the organization of your studies and the presentation of your skills to the outside world. The overview will also help you to decide whether you want to graduate under the old or the new regulations.

Focus

In order to make your diploma more clearly classifiable for third parties, you can now choose a focus in your MAS or DAS program. This focus can support your profile which may be advantageous on the job market, especially for specialized positions.

New or modified study programs and modules
